Academy’s rugby sides reach finals

Rugby sides from Welland Park Academy have made it to county finals.

The Year 9s defeated Brookvale College 35-5 to reach the final of the County Plate last month.

The result was followed a few days later by the Year 8 team beating Market Bosworth 25-5 to get to the final of the County Cup.

The finals will be played at Loughborough RFC on Thursday, March 7.

Parent Chris Lawton said: “These are fantastic achievements and credit must be given Mr Button (head of PE) and his colleagues.”
